Pullings held up the lantern and said in a neutral voice, ‘It is a young woman I believe, sir.’After a stay in New South Wales, which the crew found more harrowing than a fleet action, the Surprise has set her course for Easter Island. On board shipMorePullings held up the lantern and said in a neutral voice, ‘It is a young woman I believe, sir.’After a stay in New South Wales, which the crew found more harrowing than a fleet action, the Surprise has set her course for Easter Island.

On board ship are two escaped convicts: Padeen, Stephen’s Irish servant, and a very unusual young woman – Clarissa Oakes. Her presence puts Jack in an awkward position, and his long-held disapproval of women on board (troublesome, unlucky creatures, capable of using fresh water to wash their clothes) is proved well founded when rivalry for her favours causes intense ill-feeling between the officers.

Clarissa herself holds the clue to a problem that has obsessed Stephen for several years – the identity of a highly placed traitor. Yet eager as he is to use this information, first the Surprise must intervene in a war on the island of Moahu.A broad selection of prints, sketches and paintings have been selected to illustrate this book, many of them sourced from libraries in Australia and New Zealand and showing not only the near-at-hand Norfolk Island, but also the Sandwich and Friendly Islands, with scenes of early contact between French or English ships and indigenous peoples.
